Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study is to analyze women of colors's (WOC) experiences working within the United States Forest Service (USFS) accessing the challenges of recruitment, retention, and promotional efforts. Using testimonios and Anzaldúa's theory of mestiza consciousness, I found three themes that included white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, presumed incompetence, and resistance and empowerment. Based on three women of color(s)'s testimonios, we provide suggestions for the recruitment, retention, and promotion of women of colors in the USFS. Further, women of colors collectively reclaim their power to voice their oppression and co-construct knowledge in their empowerment through an Anzaldúa poetic expression.
